Catchment Conservation and Rehabilitation of Degraded Lands along Isiolo and Ngare Nything rivers in Northern Mt. Kenya.
Catchment Conservation and Rehabilitation of Degraded Lands along Isiolo and Ngare Nything rivers in Northern Mt. Kenya.
The communities in the Isiolo and Ngare Nything water catchments have teamed up to implement a joint project that aims to conserve the two river catchments by protecting riparian area, improving the areas around springs and developing off-site sanitation facilities for their water users and their livestock. They have partnered with GEF/SGP through the Mt Kenya COMPACT Initiative for a two year project covering 2010 -2012. Other project partners include local large scale farmers, Water Resources Management Authority and the Ewaso Ngiro Natural Resources Conservation project by AfDB.

The project has mobilized over 15,000 community members to participate in this initiative.
